The Merryall Center for the Arts in New Milford will kick off its Coffeehouse Series with a performance by Don Lowe May 13.

Lowe has been featured in venues across the country and has opened for many national acts.

Since 2009, he has been the open mic host for the Towne Crier Café in Beacon, N.Y., and he hosts a radio show for Pawling Public Radio that features local independent musical artists.

His second CD, “Out Here,” was released in 2013 and his first release, “Dogs, Clowns, and Belles,” came out in 2010.

Organized by board member Rob Brereton, the series, which features local performers in an intimate setting, will be held Saturdays when no regular performances are scheduled.

“Our goal is to provide alternative musical options and to ensure something is going on at Merryall just about every Saturday — except May 27 and July 1 — until September,” Brereton said.

The performance will begin at 8 p.m. at the Merryall Center, 8 Chapel Hill Road.

Tickets are $15 at the door.
